This is a huge hit among my friends and family. I tried to scale the original model down to 76% for the kids, but the hilt was weak in several spots and broke easily. The newer thicker hilt is a lot stronger and is working well so far. Also, I always print the blades in vase mode and they won't scale down well if you keep the width fixed at 0.85mm. At 76% scale for the hilt, I had to scale the largest blade at 74%, and the next at 72%, etc. It doesn't extend as evenly as the full sized model, but its the closest I could get. If anyone has a better approach on scaling down this model, please share.
